Do not consume affected products
"These products should not be consumed," the company writes. "Salmonella are bacteria whose metabolic products can trigger acute intestinal inflammation, salmonellosis," explains the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its website.
“A typical Salmonella infection is characterized by nausea, possibly vomiting, abdominal pain, fever and diarrhea. These symptoms can last for several days. As a rule, the disease heals after a few days even without medical treatment, ”it continues.
Infants, toddlers, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system in particular can develop more severe illnesses.
"People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection," warns Willms Weißwasser GmbH & Co. KG. Preventing medical treatment without symptoms is not a good idea. (ad)
